We Were Pirates in Wired Magazine!

We Were Pirates is featured in the March issue of Wired Magazine! I’m a huge Wired fan and it is one of only two magazines I subscribe to (get your mind out of the gutter, the other one is Spin). You can see the feature in the print or iPad versions of issue 20.03, so run out and grab a copy….or download the new issue on the iPad app.

“You heard this band’s public radio-friendly pop on This American Life and you heard its tracks on MTV’s: The Real World: DC. So don’t miss “Better Off Without You” from the new album. Catchy synths will have your crew dancing a jig.”

Thanks Wired!

Oh and you can get the new WWP album referenced in the article on iTunes or Bandcamp. Thanks!

Thanks to Jeff at SurfRhythm for the Kind Words!

“Change is everything and more that a sophomore effort should be. There’s musical growth, maturity, and a clear cohesiveness throughout all ten tracks of Change.”  –  Surfrhythm

Thanks Jeff!
